What’s with this Nets fan, who just sits there and lets his beer get blasted to hell by an errant Quincy Acy pass? Hey, look alive, buddy!
Though not nearly as gruesome, the knee injury suffered by Jeremy Lin last night was just as stomach-churning as the leg break that ended Gordon Hayward’s season on Tuesday night. The gut punch didn’t come from any horrifically twisted limb, but from Lin’s anguished reaction.
Jeremy Lin went down with an ugly knee injury in the fourth quarter of tonight’s game against the Indiana Pacers after going up for a contested layup.
Remember when Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov showed up at a team practice and gave his players an unbelievably awkward demonstration of his wall-dribbling drills? As it turns out, those drills were not simply the invention of one man’s wealth-addled mind, but part of a martial art known as Tescao, which Prokhorov…
Here’s Lakers legend and president of basketball operations Magic Johnson, explaining the trade that sent D’Angelo Russell to the Nets and cleared the way for second overall pick Lonzo Ball to supplant him as the team’s point guard of the future:
The second big trade domino has fallen ahead of Thursday’s NBA draft. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Los Angeles Lakers will send point guard D’Angelo Russell and NBA Finals hero Timofey Mozgov to Brooklyn in exchange for Brook Lopez and the 27th pick in the draft.
Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News today dropped an excellent history of the incredibly ill-fated and lopsided 2013 trade that sent Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce from Boston to the Brooklyn Nets, in exchange for a bundle of unprotected draft picks and pick-swaps that wound up including this year’s first overall.
This is the most compelling Brooklyn Nets news of the year.
It’s been five years since Jeremy Lin stumbled out of the D-League and set the basketball world on fire with a few weeks worth of heroics for a moribund New York Knicks team. Rather than fade into obscurity or establish himself as a full-blown star, Lin has just sort of become a normal NBA player. He runs point for…
The old, terrible, hopeless Brooklyn Nets, who are dead last in the entire league with an embarrassing 20-61 record, have announced they will sit six of their players in their last game against the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night, including starters Jeremy Lin and Brook Lopez, as well as bench guy Trevor Booker.…
The Brooklyn Nets are in a weird place. They aren’t in a position to go for wins, since they are the worst team in the NBA, but they also don’t have an incentive to tank, since they owe their pick to the Celtics. All they have to play for is the development of their young players.
Many NBA teams are good, or are crummy but feature some fun young Turks who can provide some reason for optimism, or are not good and do not have fun young Turks but are taking it to the limit one more time with ol’ Dirk Nowitzki, and therefore are good to root for. In almost every NBA city, there’s some reason to…
Ever since he somehow survived Larry Nance, Jr. dropping a piano on his head, Brook Lopez has been biding his time, waiting patiently for an opportunity to earn his soul back from the basketball gods. That time came in the third quarter of Friday night’s game against the Miami Heat; in related news, Rodney McGruder is…
Anthony Bennett was waived by the Nets today, a day after not getting off the bench in a loss to the NBA’s second-worst team. And in slightly more surprising news (to me, at least), Anthony Bennett was on the Nets.
Last night I brought my young cousins to watch the worst team in basketball. What a relief to watch them improve to the second-worst, and in such electrifying fashion, too:
Larry Nance Jr. has had the springs to get up and pound one on someone for a bit now, and my lord, today he finally went and did it.
You can label this slip of the tongue, spoken by Nets forward Anthony Bennett while attempting to cut a preseason promo, a blooper if you’d like:
